WSP is an employer committed to sustainable practices. 

WSP’s ongoing efforts in the areas of ESG (environmental, social and governance) receives fresh recognition at a global level, with the company qualifying for inclusion in S&P’s Sustainability Yearbook 2022. WSP also received an Industry Mover Award. 

Top-performing company

To be listed in S&P’s Yearbook, companies must rank in the top fifteen per cent of their industry and must achieve a score within thirty per cent of their industry’s top-performing company.

Companies are awarded an Industry Mover Sustainability Award if they also improve their S&P Global ESG Score by at least five per cent, in addition to recording the strongest improvement in their industry.

“We’re honoured to see our efforts for continuous improvement across our ESG program being recognized. This is a testament to WSP’s ambitious ESG goals,” says André-Martin Bouchard, WSP Global Corporate Director, ESG.

“In 2021, for example, we pledged to achieve net zero emissions across our value chain by 2040. To support this achievement, we have set science-based GHG emission reduction targets, approved by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi). These targets aligned with the 1.5 degrees Celsius scenario of the Paris Agreement. We have a clear ESG governance in place, and we have set a number of targets for Diversity and Inclusion, and the wellbeing of our people. And with our Future Ready program, we are well positioned to advise our clients on their own transition to a low-carbon economy,” he says.

WSP is committed to achieving net zero emissions across its value chain by 2040, providing forward-thinking advice, innovations and unparalleled expertise to help WSP clients succeed in a changing world.

With over 7,000 companies assessed, an inclusion in the Yearbook is a true statement of corporate sustainability excellence,” adds Manjit Jus, Managing Director, Global Head of ESG Research, S&P Global.
